Retirement?

Over the last few years I have been hearing rumors of my retirement. My job description has bee changed several times by transferring responsibilities and discontinuing others but that is not he same as quitting.

Over the last year or two I have transferred administration of CCM, pasturing staff, travelling to bookstores and quite a bit of personal ministry to Matt Meyer. He has not complained.

Five years ago I quit taking conferences out of town. More recently I moved my office to our home for counseling, and later quit preaching at the Chinese Church in Pullman.

Then last Thursday we made a bi-lateral decision (God and I) for me to quit preaching, going to church and counseling here in the home. All of the above have been down because Bessie has become increasingly frail and needs me even if I am not much help. I am honoring previously made commitments (I am speaking at CRF at the University of Idaho on February 8, 2010 at 7:30 pm on “Life between the Sexes.” If you need a refresher course be sure to be there). This is my last event.

Does this mean I am retired? No. It just means I will not be available to other people. If you want to see Bessie, that is fine. Call first: 208-882-4383. When not house keeping, I will be writing, studying and hopefully, praying.

If any of you would like to pick up correspondence with prisoners, please let me know how many prisoners you would like.

In the Lord Jesus Christ,

Jim Wilson

What a blessing that God has put you in a position to love and care for your wife in that way. We will be praying for her health and that he blesses you both as your journey changes.
